Still Need to Get Your Booster or Flu Shot? MetroHealth to Host Free Clinic in Maple Heights
The MetroHealth System will run a free COVID booster and flu vaccination clinic in Maple Heights for the next three Thursdays.
The vaccination clinic will operate Dec. 9, 16 and 23 from 9 a.m. until 4:50 p.m. at 5398 Northfield Road in Maple Heights, 44137. There is ample free parking and the clinic is on the 40, 41 and 90F bus lines.
The clinic is open to anyone 18 years or older. Registration is strongly encouraged but walk-ins will be accepted.
With a rise in COVID-19 infections and the onset of flu season, COVID vaccinations and boosters, as well as flu vaccinations, are urged for everyone who is eligible. The CDC’s guidance encourages COVID boosters for everyone 18 and older.
“We are pleased to offer COVID boosters and flu shots to thousands of people,” said Akram Boutros, MD, FACHE, President and CEO of The MetroHealth System. “MetroHealth opened this clinic in Maple Heights because we saw an urgent need in the surrounding neighborhoods and zip codes. Our mission is to expand access to health care, and this effort does just that.”

The Dec. 16 clinic will offer the Pfizer vaccine while the Dec. 9 and 23 clinics will offer the Moderna vaccine. People can get either vaccine, regardless of what their initial dose was.
